<p>This place is very popular for <a href="https://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/trails/photo/e2ffee649139459bb862236fb56e9100.htm" rel="nofollow">Jeeps</a> because the rugged trails consist of <a href="https://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/trails/photo/51a47dd220194a7a946c4fe4390b7291.htm" rel="nofollow">steep and chunky climbs</a>, deep ruts, seasonal mud pits and a few shallow stream crossings. The 20 mile trail system is primarily geared for <a href="https://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/trails/photo/7e9a99f6b0ae4b5eb8e013c2a10b9a0f.htm" rel="nofollow">4x4s</a> and four wheelers but all vehicle types including dirt bikes are permitted.</p><p> Free primitive camping with direct trail access can be found at Art Lilley Campground. The campground is graded with loose gravel and sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. Amenities include a vault toilet, unloading ramp and garbage cans but no running water. There are several full service campgrounds nearby including <a href="https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/horseriding-camping/recarea/?recid=48938&amp;actid=55" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Arrowhead Campground</a> and <a href="https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/horseriding-camping/recarea/?recid=48940&amp;actid=34" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Badin Lake Campground</a> but they do not provide direct OHV access so unless street legal, machines need to be hauled to and from the staging areas.</p><p>There are several staging areas to choose from but the trail that starts from Cotton Place Staging Area is rated as <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdHh8wprkzc" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">extremely difficult</a> and should only be attempted by experienced riders.</p><p>Visitors should note that an OHV Trail Pass is required and must be purchased <strong>prior to arrival</strong> since there is no on-site self service pay station. Passes can be purchased at nearby <a href="https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/nfsnc/passes-permits/recreation/?cid=stelprdb5186289" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">vendors</a> (see <a href="https://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/trails/info/north_carolina_09210/directions_6e1f.htm" rel="nofollow">map</a> for locations) or by visiting the Uwharrie National Forest District Office.</p>
